Of Course, My Horse! Rare 1982 Chevy Corvette Caballista for Sale

Calling the Caballista a “collector edition” somehow doesn’t feel like a good enough designation for the coach-built Corvette. From 1977 to 1982, only 50 of these were hand-crafted by Les Dunham of Dunham Coach Motor Car Company in Boonton, New Jersey (you know, the dude who built the Corvorado from Live and Let Die).

This exact car is a 1982, so not only is it one of 50, it’s one of the last of the 50. Based on the Collectors Edition Chevy Corvette, it only has 16,870 miles. It has a Crossfire fuel-injected 5.7-liter L-83 V8 and a 700 R4 automatic transmission. Gone is the beautiful shape of the C3, and in is a swooping body with a roof that doesn’t belong, and a “Rolls-style” grille. This thing seriously seems like it’d be a car that Cruella de Vil might drive, which is oddly satisfying.

It’s listed at $23,900, which is a pretty decent price for such a rare vehicle.
